had a chance to check out the new Feist album Metals today, and a hauntingly sublime song called "Bittersweet" caught my ear. Later in the day, I listened to a friend's show on Gaston college radio station WSGE -- he played another tune called "Bittersweet", this time it was the popular song by Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Two more "bittersweet" songs instantly popped into my head, "Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve, and a personal favorite of mine, "Bittersweet" buy Australia's own Hoodoo Gurus. This of course, instantly sealed the deal on what I would be doing for my Y! Music playlist tonight. I was able to find a dozen more songs, in addition to these four, that all contain the word "bittersweet" in the title, and it makes a surprisingly fine listen.
What "bittersweet" songs would be on your list?
